The holiday season is a time for giving back to others. Sometimes we need to give to people we don't even know. It is not about getting new stuff. As a class, we wanted to find a way to help others.
Yesterday, we found out that the students and teachers from the Sandy Hook Elementary School are moving into a new building. They are moving all the furniture into the building, but it is not decorated like a school. They requested that students send glittery snowflakes to decorate their school so that when the students return, it will look like a Winter Wonderland.
For our Christmas party, we made snowflakes for Sandy Hook Elementary School. When we were making the snowflakes, we put glue on our snowflakes and we sprinkled glitter onto the snowflakes. We really enjoyed taking time to do something for other people even though we've never met. We hope that our snowflakes bring joy and happiness to those students. ~MH and AM
